In celebration of the second annual Flavor! Napa Valley, organizers of the wine and food festival have partnered with private jet industry player Magellan Jets and Meadowood Napa Valley resort to create an exclusive Napa Valley wine tasting travel package.
The package includes tickets for two to the marquee event of the festival, “The Legends of Napa Valley: A Definitive Tasting”, as well as tickets to two additional events, round-trip flights on one of Magellan’s jets and luxurious accommodations at Meadowood.
In two days, November 16 and 17, only 32 people will have the opportunity to taste more than 60 wines that tell the story of the Napa Valley. The wines will be described and commented upon by both winemakers and members of an expert panel, which includes Nicholas Jackson of Sotheby’s.
Day one is allocated for tasters to experience rare wines from founding wineries and wineries that led the post-Prohibition renaissance, such as Schramsberg, Stony Hill and Robert Mondavi. Day two is devoted to the new pioneers, featuring vintages from the likes of Staglin Family and Harlan Estate vineyards.
The oldest wine tasted will be a Louis M. Martini 1957 Pinot Noir. Another notable wine to be poured is a Chateau Montelena 1976 Chardonnay.
